Businesses and home owners are being  placed on high alert as Chester prepares for  more flooding.

The Environment Agency has issued a flood  warning for properties close to the River Dee  during high tide in the Llandudno area on Friday, January 3 at 11.46am.

Areas including the Groves, Chester Racecourse, Grosvenor Bridge, Greyhound Park,  River Lane and New Crane Street are expected  to bear the brunt of the flood waters less than two hours later as high winds sweep the region.

Last month high winds saw water pour into  businesses, playgrounds and properties  across the city as high winds caused the River  Dee to breach its banks causing chaos across  the region.

 

Customers were left stranded in cafes, a boat  capsized on the Dee and business owners were  left with a massive clean-up operation, as the  water cascaded over sandbags and drains  struggled to cope with the volume of water.

The flood warning, which is the third in less  than two months for the area, has been issued  for high tide tomorrow.

Residents are urged to monitor the Environment Agency’s website and to call the  Floodline 0845 988 1188, selecting option one  and entering Quickdial number 02251 to get   further information.
